Inpatient Children's Hospital

The 500,000 square foot Inpatient Children's Hospital will house trauma and emergency care; 72 private rooms for acute and intensive care; increased capacity for imaging services; family amenities including playrooms, performance spaces, Ronald McDonald House Charities rooms and outdoor gardens; and spaces for collaboration and education. The 16-story building will include an additional four levels below-ground for future valet parking expansion. The hospital will replace existing inpatient unit beds and consolidate inpatient and emergency care to one location, adjacent to the outpatient Children’s Pavilion on the VCU Medical Center campus.

The new hospital is part of a comprehensive plan to address the needs of the community and the state, becoming a destination for children and their families seeking exceptional health care as well as a destination for research and educational opportunities.
